I love all these diverse designs, especially the Persian carpet design that is so reminiscent of great Navajo designs. Th stained glass concept is so appealing. I once painted a stained glass floorcloth design, and was surprised to find it become a customer favorite. Transitional designs are also very trendy now, and is a good choice if you are blending styles and need a design to transition into your unique decor. I especially like to see the revival of floorcloths!
